Keeping it meta in the physical age.
Tenet is the worst Nolan film
and don’t try to convince me that
it all makes sense in the end
Because, when you take a closer look
The film is built on crazy ideas.
Some scenes really shine
The plot and characters don’t hold together.
And it’s not true that
Nolan knows how to write emotions
The characters can be believable
Only if there was heart in the script

My proto-sense is telling me that it's a business decision. Data analysts ran the numbers and found the bare minimum they would need to do to make the right percentage of fans happy with this dreck. And that's infuriating because Star Wars is deeply loved by many, not…
John Carpenter, The Master. Honestly how can you not call him a master after watching this? The practical effects...it's my favorite effects of any movie, right? The corpse on the table with the faces is unreal. Carpenter focuses on it multiple times because it's just. that. good. I was screaming "Oh!" like the doctor conducting the autopsy.
Perfect pacing as it starts slow and steady and grows exponentially as hell breaks loose. Even knowing all the story beats it is…
